I gave this to a college student and she loved it (we live by the beach). It reminds her of home while she is back East for school. Really sweet and a good price.
Bought this for my daughter-in-law who is expecting my first grandchild. The tree is especially significant as my father had a blanket tree with the names of his grandchildren hung in his home for many years before his passing. It was the one thing my son (my fathers namesake) wanted to have to remember his grandfather. And now his wife is giving birth to his first. The necklace is beautiful, the colors are clear and bright. The actual tree is just right, not overbearing but a sense of strength and solidity. Every once in a while you find the perfect gift! And this was it!!!!
I'm a lover of Mystic Quartz / Mystic Topaz/Aurora Borelias Topaz, etc and when I saw the size of this pendant I was excited to add this to my collection. Looking at the picture very closely, you can see that the bale is quite large. However, if you really look at it, you can see the bale is actually attached to the pendand itself by a square piece of sterling. In the picture, this doesn't look like much but when the pendant arrived, I found the design a bit odd on the eyes since there is a good bit of space between the pendant, the square and the bale itself. The other let-down was the flaw in the coating on the quartz itself. I don't believe it was because of an inclusion within the stone itself, but instead an issue with the application of the color to the stone. I would like to point out that the peak of the stone behind the pendant was not smooth as you would find with machine-shaped stones. I'm not saying this was hand faceted by any means, but I found this different. All of this said, I would like to point out that the quality of the silversmithing itself was very satisfying & very sound.
And I must say that this necklace is nothing to write home about. Small beads (but I love small beads), packed so tightly together...if the wire broke someone could be injured. Meh.
